|photophob - about the living things [laridae028] - photophob|
the wonder of life. the coincidence of being. photophob celebrates the origins of organic life by dedicating eight tracks to eight different microorganisms, floating lazily through the waters of a primeval ocean or crawling nosily around the crusty surface of the earth's first landmasses. eight tracks, neglecting nearly every form of freaky beat programming or spacy sound effects, making them more digestible than most of photophob's breakbeat oriented works...

|Tom Pi - Space Oddities [laridae055] - Tom Pi|
Tom Pi’s childhood in the 70s and 80s was shaped by Superhero-comics, Action-figures, Science Fiction Series and Perry Rhodan novels. The naive charm and aesthetics of these early visions of future can be found again in his music. Analogue Synthesizers are wobbling along, psychedelic Guitar sounds are floating around and the voices sound foreign and somewhat mechanic. Bass and drums are unerringly paving their way through this sound universe...

|Schaua - Remove Protective Film [laridae063] - Schaua|
Is there a sense of satisfaction in the sound wavering air, or is Schaua playing some sort of game with us again? We nearly got used to his accusingly rough rock'n roll attitude on the last releases, and now … he got thoughtful all of a sudden. Sitting in his hotel room, wandering over the street lighted sidewalks of his old home town. Time and people passing by. Music is playing. Everything is perfect, everything is in its place.

Harry Jen, that means experimental music that doesn’t let it show, the experimental. Grown from the hot spot between pop and serious music, between acoustic and electronic, between natural and synthetic, and not least between concrete and improvised an unequalled sound emerges. Imagine paintings for the headphones. Organic, thought-out, uncompromising, sound affine. The tricks of sound wizard Harry Jen set standards.
